How many full res pictures would you like? I'd be happy to send you full res files of any of the pictures on this page. Full res pictures take too long to upload and to come up on the HubPages website.

Thanks Ralph, enjoyed photos, and found them entertaining.


viwabbit 8 years ago

Don't need 300dpi, just 1600px wide - 72 or 96dpi works fine. Do you have a photobucket or flickr account where you could put them? Otherwise email will work. #3 and #19 would be great, I'll add them to my collection of Deeds photos!

Happy New Year to you and yours, may you have good health and happiness in the coming year!

VW, No, I don't have a photo bucket or flickr account. Usually I email them to myself in order to reduce the size of the files. Sometimes I forget. Tnx for the suggestion.

What a great line up of photos. I went over to your youtube area and took a look as well. Great stuff. The Express 27 in the youtube really is flying. Wish I was on board.

Thank you.

I recently acquired an Express 27 project and I can tell you so far it is an incredible sailing machine, extremely strong, nimble and fast. I have sailed for over 40 years and this craft is the ultimate saiing machine.

Love the photos

Thanks,

Fredrik

Thanks! Yes, the Express 27 is the best sailing boat I've ever sailed. I bought mine in 1986. It's very light and very strong. We had ours up to 15 knots in the Detroit NOOD last Saturday. This was a treat because we don't get those conditions very often.

Hey, Joe, good to hear from you! One of these days I'll dig out some of the old pics, scan them and add a few to the site. Regards to Beth. My boat's put away but I'll be in touch in the spring!

Ralph-Many of these are just great.  The Red Crescent sloop (I believe that's what you called it) REALLY is good.  It just stands out for me.  Looks like a butterfly wing or something.

Have you tried to sell your work?  That is what I'm thinking of doing.

Thanks, Lita.I've sold a few. Mostly I give them away.

I am inspired by your photos of sailboats to paint a series of large panels. May I use some of your pictures as my basis for these paintings? They will be somewhat abstracted. I want to get the feel of the energy of their movement and the dynamic shapes. I will be limited only by the ceiling in my studio which I believe I can go about 7ft tall with several panels that go together...perhaps 5 panels on canvas. Your photographs are the best. Your permission would be greatly appreciated. I have dedicated most of my career to painting portraits but now at the age of 70 I am finally branching out into other subjects. Thanks so much for your consideration. You may see some of my work if you Google me at (Doyle Chappell portriats).

Be my guest. I hope you'll put them up on a Hub. I'd be interested in seeing what you do with them. You're welcome to use them as you wish. I'll look for them on your site. Or it would be great if you'd put them up on a Hub on this site. Good luck. I'm flattered that you like my pictures. I have thousands of them.

Great pictures. The picture of my Etchells "Assault III" going out to the start of the GLYC regatta in 1979 hangs in my office and still draws rave reviews by visitors.

The challenger in the America's Cup gave the defender a lesson in technology and multihull sailing in the first race off the Spanish coast . It was a drubbing, the like of which has not been seen in this competition since the mismatch of Dennis Conner's catamaran and New Zealand's 132ft monohull in 1988. It was a surprise to most observers but BMW Oracle Racing's trimaran was eminently superior to Ernesto Bertarelli's Alinghi 5 catamaran.

Within the first minute of the pre-start Alinghi 5 was in trouble, trapped in a right-of-way situation by an aggressive Jimmy Spithill, the BMW Oracle skipper, and penalised by the umpires. Spithill, however, had slightly overcooked and he stalled the big trimaran. He thus started one minute and 27 seconds in arrears – a matter of 660 metres.

That deficit disappeared quickly in a 7-8 knot breeze and after 18 minutes of the race, the trimaran was ahead. By the time the two boats rounded the mark, after 20 miles, BMW Oracle was 2,140m ahead, a matter of 3:21 and with a penalty turn still to take.

On the downwind leg, BMW Oracle proved faster and able to sail closer towards the finish line – a devastating ability. She finished eight and a half minutes in front.
